Ultra Hub Device Blocking

Message 1 of 3 (173 Views)

Forced to use the Ultra Hub, under advanced user settings, where is there any option to block devices by mac on LAN.

Option for wifi mac filtering appears yet has ZERO effect at allowing or blocking. Cant even paste mac address!

Any device not on allow is connected and any device in deny is connected fine.

Is mac filtering for security actually doing anything? Even after reset and apply mulitple times.

Where can a user manage devices connected lan or wifi?

I just tried the MAC Address Filter (under the Wi-Fi tab) and was able to deny access to my iPhone, and low and behold, I looked at my iPhone and it was no longer connected to Wi-Fi. MAC filter only works for Wi-Fi devices.

 

There is also a parental control feature under the Internet Tab that blocks access at certain times. I also tested this with my iPhone and while my iPhone still shows as being connected to Wi-Fi, i wasn't able to load any web pages. This feature also works for LAN devices.

 

So the parental control feature is likely the one you want, you can set access to be blocked at whatever time of day you wish.

 

Both of these features are found in advanced mode.
